BOISE, Idaho (KIVI) — Lori Vallow Daybell is now in the Ada County Jail.

A new mugshot also now accompanies her information on the inmate roster, despite a technical issue delaying the process.

Vallow Daybell has been in the Madison County Jail since March 2020. She is facing several counts of murder and conspiracy to commit murder for the deaths of her children — JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan — and her husband’s previous wife, Tammy Daybell in 2019.

The couple was set to stand trial together up until earlier this month when Judge Steven Boyce granted a motion by Chad Daybell’s attorney to sever the trials.

As a result of the most recent ruling in the case, Vallow Daybell is no longer facing the death penalty.

Her trial is expected to last several weeks.
